Video credit: Elsadig Arbab (Sudan) Description: Abdel Rahman El Gamal (Founder of the video channel)

The inserted video was filmed during the sampling of farmed fish in an earthen pond in Sudan. The species shown in the sample reflects the production basket of fish farming in Sudan. According to FAO statistics, 9000 tons have been produced from aquaculture in Sudan in 2017; out of which 5000 tons are Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) while the production of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) amounted 4000 tons in that year.  The size of sampled fish as shown in the video is far below the market size of both species.
